Headspace Day was celebrated with a twist this year, bringing together different organisations from Karratha to recognise their hard work supporting mental health services.

Community groups and organisations from the police to high school workers gathered at Karratha Senior High School to celebrate Headspace.

The national event held during Mental Health Month aims to support all young Australians' mental health and well-being. Headspace Pilbara manager Samara Clark said the team decided to honour stakeholders and community groups that provide support behind the scenes.

“We made that decision, because it's been tough for everyone this year,” she said.

“That's what it was about, how we work in partnership together with those other services.”

Ms Clark said it was important to recognise the work done by everyone involved in the community sector.

“We need to stop every now and then and take a breath and, celebrate one another, colleague and peer support is so important in this line of work,” she said.

“And it was it was so good to see such a variety of organisations represented.

“I think that shows that at the end of the day, everyone's number one focus is about better outcomes for young people.”
